Community Soup Kitchen

Since the start of the pandemic, we have seen a tremendous increase in need at the Community Soup Kitchen. We are now serving triple the number of meals a month with over 375,000 free meals served last year.

We serve all who come through our doors and take pride in preparing the most delicious and healthy meals possible for our guests. For the safety of our guests and staff, our meals are currently served to-go.

During the growing season, Elijah’s Promise works diligently to “rescue” food from local farms, farmers markets, and gleaning programs through partnerships with Farmers Against Hunger NJ and REPLENISH. These efforts enable us to source Jersey Fresh produce at both our salad and hot food bar.

We believe that a nutritious meal is a right, not a privilege.
